    I have a superior zombie head with skill bonuses on it (which I assume it is a magic item?) and 2 sockets. What is the chance that if I use the reward from Act 5 quest it would give me two more sockets to make a 4-socket shield?

    Moreover, should I pick up the reward anyway as I am about to finish the game and move on to the next difficulty? Or is the reward once per character?

    Thanks

    You cannot use the socketing reward on items which already have sockets. Besides, zombie heads cannot receive more than 2 sockets, only monarchs, aegises, wards and paladin shields can... except their item level is too low which roughly means they have to be from normal act 5 and beyond.

    Magical items have their names shown in blue letters. If it's white or grey, then it's nonmagical. In that case, you could apply a runeword. The Splendor runeword comes to my mind. You might not have the Lum rune for it yet, however.

    You can claim the reward at a later time as well, so move on to the next difficulty. The socketing reward is very useful, so I would invest it into something which is still worn at high levels.

    So even when I move to the next difficulty, I only get one reward for the character? If I grab the reward now, I would not get it again for the next difficulty?

    Or are you saying I could come back to the normal difficulty after I reached like level 90 to take the normal reward?

    You can come back to the lower difficulty level later.

    Hello guys!
    I have got a problem with my Plugy Installed D2SE with plugy in it
    Playing version 1 13 Everything is working great Stash stats and skill readjustment.

    But when i made my first ladder-only runeword obedience - it didnt work

    Opened Plugy.ini. in the D2SE 1.13 directory in it it is said that Active ladderonly runewords is 1.

    https://postimg.cc/image/g45tmc9jz/

    Maybe i somehow messed up the runeword or Polearm?
    Thank you guys in advance!

    I believe that's the problem. Obedience can only be made with a polearm, and a Mancather is a spear not a polearm :(

    Thank you sir. Damn, those runes were so hard gained. Oh well.
    Hopefully won't make that same mistake again.

    Also, plugy is not a forum accepted mod here - thanks.
